RDC Food safety award 29.1.16A care home in Paisley has become the latest Renfrewshire business to be presented with a prestigious Eat Safe Award for food safety.

Bupa’s Braemount care home was awarded the merit through the Eat Safe scheme, which is run by national agency Food Standards Scotland and recognises excellence in food hygiene and food safety management across the country.

Awards are only allocated when a business has achieved consistently high food hygiene and training standards beyond those required by law. Consumers can therefore be assured that the food served in premises with the coveted Eat Safe seal of approval is prepared with the utmost care.

Kate McConville, Home Manager at Bupa’s Braemount care home, said: “Our staff are extremely committed to meet residents’ nutritional needs and maintain a high standard of food hygiene and we are thrilled that all our efforts have now been recognised with an Eat Safe Award”.

Councillor Eddie Devine, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Environment Policy Board, said: “Renfrewshire Council is delighted to be able to make this award to Bupa’s Braemount care home.

“It comes following a number of consistently high inspections of the establishment carried out by council food enforcement officers.

“Food hygiene and safety are key issues for food-related businesses such as care homes and the Eat Safe award allows them to show their customers that they are operating to a very high standard indeed.”

Eligible establishments are assessed for the Eat Safe Award as part of scheduled food hygiene inspections carried out by councils.

Since the Eat Safe scheme launched in Scotland in 2005, 11 Renfrewshire businesses and other organisations have received the award.
